A fine afternoon on Saturday at Yalaha Bakery in lovely Lake County, where cloudy skies kept the summer temperatures pleasant and an attentive crowd contributed to another fun time.
At one point, the sun emerged at last, persuaded by the positive vibes generated from the stage and the audience, I’m quite sure. That’s our story, anyhow, and we’re sticking to it.
A few new entries in the set list, including another lesser known Ry Cooder chestnut and a solo take on Dave Alvin’s “Fourth of July” in honor of the upcoming holiday. (The third set, alas, was curtailed when the rains finally arrived.)
Jimmy Carl returns to the bakery on July 28. He’s enjoying the chance to stretch into the solitary realm and again offers thanks to the Cavemen for the flexibility. Thanks also for use of the blog space to record the set list.
